Special Branch duo among four held for robbery
PETALING JAYA, Nov 25 — A group of four, including three policemen, have been remanded for an alleged robbery of an insurance agent in Rawang.
The three, all 30, were an inspector and a detective at the Dang Wangi Special Branch office and a closed-circuit television control centre officer attached to the Gombak district police headquarters.
The fourth accomplice, a 34-year-old man, is believed to be an aide to a Selangor politician.
Selangor CID chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said the two Special Branch officers will remain in custody until the end of today.
“The officer from Gombak will be under remand until Sunday (tomorrow), and the fourth suspect until Monday,” he said.
The suspects were arrested in separate operations between Nov 17 and Nov 22.
In the incident, it is learnt three of the four suspects had gone to the insurance agent’s premises in Batu 17 and introduced themselves to the 51-year-old victim as policemen.
One of them kept watch at the door while two others demanded for the victim’s identification card and all the cash in the office, claiming it needed to be examined.
They then told the victim he was needed at the police station immediately.
As the victim entered his office at the rear to get his belongings, the suspects fled with RM4,000, a mobile phone, and the victim’s and his wife’s identification cards.
The insurance agent, who managed to jot down the registration number of the policemen’s car, lodged a police report. He also provided descriptions of the suspects.
